Two of the smartest things you can do when decorating your city-dwelling are to make use of indoor plants and to invest in multi-functional pieces of furniture. This brilliant new table, aptly named The Living Table, brings these two concepts together seamlessly. The innovative table design from Habitat Horticulture mimics how plants naturally absorb water from the ground, providing you with the perfect plant-ready furniture to house all of your favorite low-growing greenery.
The process is made possible through capillary action where water is drawn upwards through the table’s sub-irrigation system. The table comes equipped with various layers of material that provide the perfect balance of moisture and aeration. The self-regulating layer system also eliminates the need for drainage and excessive watering.
The table is not only smart, but it’s also strong—the top is made of 3/8-inch thick tempered glass and can support a load up to 180 pounds per square foot. Designed to accommodate the standard four-inch house plants, you can either place potted plants into the Habitat Horticulture Growtex capillary mat or replant them with any standard potting soil.
The tables are made to order and cost $850. Check out Habitat Horticulture’s website for more.
